The National Perinatal Association (NPA) is a multidisciplinary group concerned with perinatal health issues from preconception through infancy. Our members foster optimal perinatal health and quality health care by promoting education, supporting research, and influencing national priorities. NPA sponsors an annual clinical conference, serves as an education and legislative resource center, and facilitates the education of health care professionals. As a coordinating body, NPA encourages the development of new perinatal organizations and promotes communication among existing groups.


Serial publication: NPA Bulletin (newsletter), quarterly--highlights NPA activities; and Journal of Perinatology (medical journal), bimonthly--focus on clinical issues.
